Legendary Roma player and captain Giuseppe Giannini expressed his support for Daniele De Rossi as Roma’s new head coach.

In an interview with, Giannini was asked whether De Rossi was the right choice to take over following Jose Mourinho’s controversial dismissal from the capital club.

“The way he got off to a hot start to his new life as a coach is something that can be only written in the stars – three victories and playing great football, great… but if I have to be honest, I had no doubts and I’m happy, very happy because¬†Daniele De Rossi is Roma.”

“I hear everyone pointing out the level of the teams Roma faced, saying that winning was the bare minimum the team could do, and it’s unfair to say these things. It’s true that the teams they faced are weaker than the Giallorossi, but then you have to go on the pitch and you have to win. And it’s not as easy as some say.”

“Daniele was not only good, but he has the right ideas and vision in my opinion. Of course, it’s true that he still has a long way to go, but the path he’s on seems to be the right one.”
